Four favorite authors, four heartwarming stories set in Jane Austen's Regency world.
Mistletoe at Thornton Lacey
When Edmund Bertram realizes that Fanny is the perfect wife for him, he wants to propose without delay. What better time than at Christmas? Ah, but the course of true love never does run smooth ...
“The holidays have arrived early for JAFF readers this year and what a lucky thing for us indeed! A Very Austen Christmas offers a unique collection of stories that allow us to escape into the most charming holiday settings with the characters we love so dearly right from the very comforts of our very own homes. Snowshoes not necessary!” – Claudine Pepe, JustJane1813
A Very Austen Christmas. Robin Helm, Laura Hile, Wendi Sotis, and Barbara Cornthwaite revisit Pride and Prejudice, Emma, and Mansfield Park to deliver the uplifting holiday storytelling you’re looking for.
Her Christmas Gift
Elizabeth Bennet finds herself snowbound at Rosings with two rejected, but highly eligible, suitors. Does either man have a chance? Will her childhood friend, Meryton’s golden boy, win her affection, or will she accept the master of Pemberley? Perhaps she will refuse them both a second time. Her Christmas Gift deftly combines tension and emotion with humor and romance.
The Christmas Matchmaker
It’s raining; it’s pouring – and what could be better than a little Christmas matchmaking? So says Emma Woodhouse who is unexpectedly stranded at Netherfield Park. Mr. Darcy disagrees, for she has someone else in mind for adorable Elizabeth Bennet. Amid meddling, misunderstanding, and an unwelcome proposal or two, will True Love find a way?
No Better Gift
On his way to Derbyshire to spend Christmas with his family, Mr. Fitzwilliam Darcy plans to retrieve an item he left behind during his rushed escape from Netherfield—and the country miss who touched his heart. Finding Meryton practically deserted, he fears the worst. What fate could have fallen upon this once-thriving village in only three weeks? More importantly, was Miss Elizabeth Bennet in danger?

From the Authors
What readers are saying about a Very Austen Christmas:
Beautifully written, with tension that is both taut and believable. I was turning pages like a fiend.I am reading this book right now and enjoying it tremendously! This would make an excellent Christmas gift for the JAFFee on your list.
This is wonderful! Stranded with two rejected suitors – only one of whom now has a chance?
I love this Darcy. He’s so…gentle, but so…not.
Forget waiting for Santa Claus; I’m waiting for a Christmas proposal for the correct suitor.
I was smiling while reading these stories. Warmed my heart.
I loved this. The way that Anne directs everyone and yet stays within propriety is wonderful to see.
I’m a sucker for happy endings. And the right two got the happiest of endings.
I loved Her Christmas Gift. The humor brings life to the characters. I don’t know that I’ve ever read a P&P that made Anne witty and funny.
Love it! A new twist, and from my favorite story teller, Laura Hile.
